The Woman Who Wears a
Make Strong Men Quail
By FRANCES L. GARSIDE.
Copyright, 1911, National Newe Association.
Occasionally a man reachca the end of
his daya who had devoted hi life from
childhood to euch frivolous purposes and
trifling vanities that the only creditable
thing that may be said of him when the
end comes Is that at least he was never
tattooed. It la the only folly that escaped
him, and this one folly less gives him
little poet-mortem luster for the reason
that the tattoo man la rarely met.
Had he stood behind a counter In
men's clothing store and handed out a
bright assortment of tattoo designs with
ties and gloves; had hs lain In wait In
public baths ready to tattoo a man's
breast with a picture of his sweetheart
while he waits, not so many men could
claim even this one distinction.
For this reason, perhaps, men should
have more charity for the woman vwho
puts on a veil that gives her face a
fashionable tattoo designs. The beguil
ing clerk who sells veils Is met a dosen
times a. week, and the woman, being
tempted so often, falls. The begullllng
clerk points out that the spider design is
the latest fashion, or that madame would
look -well with a crocodile across her
nose, and madame buys,- puts on the veil,
and, walks the streets, a sight to make
strong men Jua.il and children scream. .
Oculists have protested that veils with
big polka dots and blotches, with In
sects obstructing the vision, are a menace
to the eyesight, and the people who are
compelled to sit opposite this fashionable
form of refined tattoo In street cars pro
test that such deformities have Injurious
effect on their eyes and nerves and sense
of harmony, but the woman who has a
veil with pattern of caterpillars puts

"Ain't you never coming back to your
work regular any more?" asked the Head
Barber, as the Manicure Lady swspt In,

"You ain't forgot my Inheritance, have
you. George?" she inquired archly. "You

George, it's great to be able to turn up
your nore at the whole works.
"I used to be different. George, before
I fell heir to this estate of which I have
told you of. In them days I used to

"Brother Wilfred used to tell me that
riches wasn't anything worth mentioning.
Wilfred, never had any, so I thought he
ought to be an authority on poverty, and
as I never had any either at that time I
didn't feel like contradicting brother. But
now I know better. I have tasted wealth,
George, and from now on finger nails
must be second In the betting, as all you
gambling barbers say."
"You ought to get around here more
regular, though," persisted the Head Bar
ber. "If you don't want to work at all,
why don't you come right out and say so,

poor manicure girl that doesn't have any

it on, taking pride In her appearance, and
has 'no thought of what her grief, and
suffering Would be If the Lord had
marked her face that way.
She puts on her veil in such a fashion
that her eyes are hidden by the head and
tall of a snake, with Its body bridging
her nose; or It msy be that che didn't
like the snake design, and when she
opens her mouth to laugh the horrified
observer notices a big spider across her
teeth. Sometimes there la a string of
bees flying out of one ear across her
face and into the other ear, giving her
head the appearance of a bee hive, and
often she looks as if the tattoo man had
done butterflies In black ink all . over
It will come to pass some day that some
near-sighted man will give a woman a
heavy slap on the cheek, and his de
fense will be that he saw a venomous
spider there, and when the wise statis
ticians have reached this deformity of
fashion, whch has so far escaped them,

If there were any attractiveness in the
style of a bug-woven veil, there would
be some excuse for a woman wearing it,
for it Is a pleasing trait In every woman
to want to look her best, but it Is a
style that Is hideous, deforming and In
jurious. The woman who wears auch a veil can
not sniff with scorn at the man who la
tattoed. He, at least, doesn't wear this
token of a weak intellect on his face.

said, finally. "I guess labor is the only
noble thing after all. As Joe Blow, the
bookmaker, was saying in here the other
night, since the days of racing is no more,
labor Is the most noble thing In the world,
only, as Joe aays, he ain't no nobleman.
"Well, George, I am here for a good
long run now, and here I am going to

brought back some new ideas about trim

the way it lays, kiddo. I want you to get
around here more regular."
"You want me to get around here?"
snorted the Manicure Lady. "When you

think I'm pretty dull."

When He Sees It
The Grip of
A curious question comes from a cor
respondent, who gives evidence of pos
sessing a good general education, which
seems to have been somewhat neglected
on the side of physics Inasmuch as the
pussies him may
trouble others, it
seems worth while
to answer his ques
tion. "Millions of tons

But for the reception of tela Inquiry
from ao respectable a source I should
have regarded It as unnecessary to point
out that smoke and gas are as much
subject to the control of the earth's
gravitation as solid bodies. The products
of combustion which rise Into the atmos
phere gradually fall back again, because
they are specifically heavier than air. To
get away from the earth's control they
would have to be projected directly up

miles per second. If they had that ve

The cold snap has brought out the fur

coats are all that could be desired, and
that's where it ends with many desired.
Hut they show an amailng variety in
color, length and fit, and along Main
Lane yesterday it looked like a parade
from the ark.
Belief In the theory that the length of
fur Indicates the coming weather has
been seriously shaken, Instead of long
furs meaning a hard winter, they now
mean a fat purse, and scant furs or no
furs at all can be safely figured as the
result of a had market, or that the old
man was on the wmog side when the

different kinds of coats. And it la In

Singularly enough, while no cannon and
no volcano la powerful enough to over
come the earth'a gravitation oompletely,
a certain force, of which we are ordi
narily entirely unaware, and which acts
only upon Infinitesimal particlea of mat-,
ter, can do it easily. This ls the force
which keeps the molecules of all sub
stances In continual vibration. The vel
ocity to whloh It gives rise varies from
the atomic weight of the aubstance con
cerned. In hydrogen the average veloc
ity of the flying molecules la nearly
aeven and a half miles per second, from
which follows the fact that there la no
free hydrogen in the earth'a atmosphere.

second, cannot get away from the earth.
All of them, however, could escape from
the moon, where a velocity of a mile and
a half per second would open the way
to freedom, and this, perhaps, is the true
reason why the moon has no atmosphere.
Ground Keeper Mason Peters walked
into the Forty-second Street Country
club yesterday and areluessly threw
his coat on a chair to free himself for
an approach to the ham. Brother Peters
had Just stepped back with a choice cut
of ham carefully balanced when his coat
suddenly sat up in the chair, waved its '
paws and barked three times. An old
man, mourning the loss of a French
poodle, wept at in lAmlllar, sound

Nuts, are as plentiful this year as at
any time we remember. Our soil is un
usually productive, and every known,
variety can be found within the limits
of the township. Many have been stored,
away in the nut factories, and the squir
rels have been busy, but the visible sup
ply has not been appreciably diminished.
There are lots of squirrels this year;.,
so many. In fact, that It la hard to dodge
them on Main Lane, and It la a wonder
that aome of the passing automobiles do
not run over them. The activity of these '
bright-eyed fellows Is marvelous, and it
is as true now as ever It was that the '
Broadway squirrel cannot be prevented
from doing a Reno from the ground.
